Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Meditation in the office

on March 28, 2018

As part of a recent staff meeting we did a whole company mindfulness meditation session. It was lead by someone who I’d not done anything with before and I’m not sure I enjoyed it.

Firstly my head space wasn’t right for meditation. I was in office mode and has 200 things to do and could have done without a half day meeting that this was part of. I also had my dog in the office and meditating with a group, with a dog who occasionally barks at unexpected noises is anything but relaxing.

The person who lead the meditation practice, spoke super slowly. He also took his shoes off to lead the session which was a bit odd in an office environment. He gave a good introduction to mindfulness but the last meditation was 10 minutes and the dog wasn’t settling during this so I was standing to one side holding the dog. Most people stayed still and in the moment.

Also there was upset a couple of days later as a photo of people meditating was posted on the company Instagram without having asked people or told them that photos would be taken during the meditation.

In general I’m glad that my office is trying to introduce people to mindfulness and meditation but I’m not sure that this was the best way for me.
